Competition Criteria: You can enter up to 2 photos in each category:
Open, Subject, Nature, Modified & [Monochrome (black & white)].
For a total of TEN photos. Any 'altered' photos should be entered in the Open or Modified categories.
We have toned down the competition to more of a relaxed learning experience. Members are ask to bring their photos on a thumb drive to the 2nd meeting of the month (4th Thurs), they are loaded to the club laptop for viewing. Photos need to be grouped together by categories for ease of loading to computer. Each member is encouraged to elaborate on there photos but not required ( what inspired them to take the photo, where, when & how, any special editing or procedures used to take the photo). They can ask other members for tips on improving their photos as well.
